About Heaven Sent
Here’s what Pure Flix has to say about Heaven Sent:
Elise, a grandmother hurt by her past, and Patrick, a widowed pastor, have closed the door on love. But with faith and a little help from technology, will their live-streamed romance find a way?“Heaven Sent”
Elise has a sort of famous past…that she’s closed the door on. In fact, she’s locked the door and thrown away the key. And she’s also closed the door on relationships (dating, that is). She’s been raising her beloved grandson, Derek, and running her darling accessories store, Moxie. Until an odd man runs into her store, and he’s…hiding?
But it’s time for things to change. Derek is 19. His video streaming site hardly has any visitors; and he feels that that describes his social relationships as well.
Speed dating. Online relationships. And…stealth streaming?

My thoughts about Heaven Sent
You probably remember the fabulous Karen Abercrombie from War Room, where she played an amazing woman of prayer. Karen is not only an actor; she’s also a writer (who co-wrote Heaven Sent with Tara Lynn Marcelle) and an executive producer. I really like what she, her fellow actors, and the film staff did with Heaven Sent.
The storyline focuses on a grandmother and her grandson–and on how very, in many ways, limited their lives are, regarding their relationships. Elise has a dear friend, Pam; her grandson, Derek; and the customers visiting her shop, Moxie. (And she doesn’t know many of them.) Derek has his grandmother, some friends, and an online female friend…whom he doesn’t really know, and hasn’t seen. Oh, and he has a video streaming site but hardly any visitors.
So in many ways, they’re both isolated. They love each other, of course; but both of them need more.
And then, there’s Patrick, the widowed pastor of a local church. His relationships center around the church and counseling his parishioners. When Elise and Patrick get thrown together in the most interesting of ways, lives are about to change. And Derek? He has a very extraordinary idea for getting more viewers and subscribers. And it’s not illegal, or maybe unethical (exactly)–but oh my! Look out!
Love is patient, love is kind.It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. –1 Corinthians 12:4-7 (The Bible, NIV)
Heaven Sent is, at its core, the story of how we are all, really, trying our best to navigate life and relationships. There are differences, of course, from generation to generation, in the ways we approach those. And we totally mess up…and then try to pick up the pieces. Our actions and words impact others, and indirectly, ourselves; our relationships with God, too. But in His goodness, even when we’ve pushed Jesus aside, He really is there waiting to be invited back in, eager to embrace us and help us.
At its heart, Heaven Sent feels very all-embracing. It will give you a window into the lives of those who are older, younger, or even the same age as you are! We’re all looking for love, in one way or another. Here’s a beautiful film that talks not only about the love we have for each other–but that our good God has for us. And about how lives can change and grow in the most unexpected ways.
